Weakness occurs when we are inactive in our lifestyle. This is a term that suggest that fragility, vulnerability, slowness, disability, poor health and feebleness. If we remain inactive these things can lead to…
·       Fluid retention and Increased blood pressure
·       Stiff joints and the inability to ambulate or injuries
·       Weight loss or gain (muscle atrophy)
·       Shortness of breath upon activity and likelihood to fall
By becoming active you can avoid these things. There are four different categories and you can receive different benefits from each.
 
·       Activities that increase your breathing and heart rate such as walking, biking or swimming.
·       Exercises that build strength such as wrist and ankle weights applied while lifting your extremities.
·       Balance activities that can be done to prevent falls, such as sitting and touching your finger to your nose and sitting with good posture.
·       Joint mobility or flexibility such as stretching your arms, legs, neck and back.
 
In conclusion, if you want to maintain your health, I suggest that you keep mobile to lower your blood pressure and maintain your muscle mass to prevent from getting injuries. Keep active!
